Frameless Kitchen Cabinets

Often called “European style”, frameless cabinets have been becoming more popular in the US as of late. Typically the US market has praised kitchen cabinets with a face frame, but trends are bringing frameless into the lime light. Frameless cabinets are sometimes referred to as “full access” cabinets due to the fact that they offer up to 20% more storage space.

So how do they get away with this? Well frameless cabinets are built out of higher-grade case material. This keeps the cabinet strong while ditching the solid frame. Therefore, frameless kitchen cabinets are slightly more environmentally friendly as they use less resources. Although frameless cabinets tend to be the way to go for more modern looking kitchens they can also be used for more traditional kitchens while keeping that extra storage. Come down and talk to one of designers about making the switch to frameless cabinets!

Koch Cabinets Just Keep Getting Better!

Since starting in 1999 Koch and Co continue making improvements to their kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Keeping up with the times is important to the company. Here’s some of the things they’ve been doing to stay on trend. The finish is now applied flat lined. This results in a thicker, more durable application that’ll outlast the competitions.

Koch has been able to simplify cabinet construction while keeping it stronger with a ½” back, making it more durable than competitors at similar price levels. Getting rid of the middle style on wall cabinets has not only added more space and accessibility, but looks much cleaner. As far as hardware goes Koch now offers plenty of premium upgrades.
